Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough won 'Dancing With The Stars' last night (25.05.10).
The Pussycat Dolls singer and her professional dance partner were crowned season 10 champions after beating Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek and ESPN's sportscaster Erin Andrews to the coveted mirrorball trophy.
The pop star beauty was speechless when she heard the news, but managed to scream with glee.
Derek - who won the show once before with Brooke Burke in season seven - told show co-host Tom Bergeron: "Everyone's been amazing. I'm so happy."
During the dramatic final, the three couples chose to dance an Argentine tango in the hopes of clinching victory.
Erin and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were first to be eliminated, leaving Evan and his ballroom partner Anna Trebunskaya to battle it out against the hot favourites.
Nicole and Derek's sexy jive to 'Proud Mary' took them soaring into the lead of the two-night competition with a score of 115 out of a total 120 points, beating Evan and Anna's score of 108.
Despite losing, Evan was delighted with how much he had achieved and enjoyed the show.
He said: "It's been such a blast. We were totally satisfied with everything we gave in these last few weeks and we're so proud of Nicole and Derek. They deserve it and they worked so hard and they inspired all the rest of the couples in the competition."
